Saddam Meets Lawyer for First Time
Thursday, December 16, 2004

AMMAN, Jordan ? Saddam Hussein (search) met for the first time since his capture a year ago with a defense lawyer Thursday, two days after Iraq announced it will soon bring top figures of the fallen regime to court, the chief of the former dictator's legal team said.

Ziad al-Khasawneh said Saddam met for four hours with a representative of the legal team. He declined to identify the lawyer, but said he was Iraqi and that the meeting took place at Saddam's undisclosed detention site.

"He was in good health and his morale was high and very strong," al-Khasawneh said. "He looked much better that his earlier public appearance when he was arraigned a few months ago."

He provided few details on the meeting.

Al-Khasawneh said he did not know when Saddam, who was arraigned July 1 in Baghdad, would next be brought to court.

Interim Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi (search) said Tuesday that war crimes trials against Iraq's former Baath Party (search) leaders will begin next week. Saddam will not be among those to appear in court. At the hearings next week, an investigative judge will question some of the defendants, the court announced Wednesday.

I dunno, Custer. The ACLU hasn't gotten involved because they see no violation of Hussein's rights under the US Constitution. Apparently you do. Can you explain?

How quickly we forget what was recently posted.

The future of the ACLU is international. What a nice way to pursue their new strategy for growth.
